    Thanks everybody!
    LOL they have just about anything a fish could want anyway . They are in a 30g long by themselves and lots of food.
    The fry are eating decapsulated brine shrimp. Their little tummy's turn orange and bulge after eating.

    Thanks:) My angels are usually the rabbits around here but these are fairly new acquisitions. They are checking their cave out again but don't think they will spawn again while their caring for small fry.

    The Krib fry were 14 days old yesterday and still living with mom and dad :) I can tell their growing every day. Their eating first bites, crushed flakes, and chopped blood worms.

    I moved all the krib fry to a 20g grow out tank at thhree weeks and a week later mom and dad have another batch out swimming around. I didn't realize they would spawn so easily. The parents have been really good parents.
    Here is a pic of the grow out tank and some of the 4 week old fry.

    I have kribs too. Good luck on turning off the spawning button on them. They are like convicts or live bearers.

    My first pair I had too all of 3 days to spawn in a community tank.
